Hustler Props

2 posts in this topic

I need to purchase a second prop for my Yamaha outboard. I have noticed some dealers offering a "Hustler" prop. upgrade. Can anyone explain what a Hustler Prop. is and what type of performance one could expect?

Thanks, Dan

I think that is refering to a prop that is a hub and seperate blade design... supposed to save you $$$ when you replace props, not having to get hub assy at same time...

I have a Yamaha 90 hp 2002, and too am looking for second prop... composite is out... they are supposed to be good in case you hit somthing, they break rather than tear up lower unit. But most boats have slip sleeves, or shear pins anyhow... the composite robs you of some power and speed due to flex. SO I HAVE BEEN TOLD... may not be true, I have not tried them myself...

But the props you are talking about are two part, hub then blades, they each cost $69.99 as per local marine store, so why not buy a good alum prop for the same $70 to $80 ....

Im looking too, so anyone else with experience please comment...

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
